Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo, and Blake Shelton took to the stage at the beginning of their top 3 show to pay tribute to the young victims of the Newtown shootings on Monday night, leaving the audience teary-eyed as they joined the remaining contestants in a haunting rendition of “Hallelujah” while holding up namecards for each victim.

The tribute, which took the place of the show’s usual loud, bright, over-the-top opening routine, has been widely regarded as the most touching version of the song that’s come about in a long time and was a much-needed nod to the families and victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy. “Saturday Night Live” also replaced their opening bit with a tribute, adding a children’s choir to the stage rather than a comedy sketch.

    Very beautiful, and balanced. Not so over the top to make it depressing, just enough to let people know how much they care

  • rebecca

    Beautiful and perfectly balanced to keep it from being depressing but enough to show their love!

    These guys are so talented and hearing them sing this tribute is beautiful and brought tears to my eyes. Very heart felt. God always has a plan. Life is short whether we live to 100 or 5. We are born, we live, we die but I am sure we never end since we are pieces of our creator and God is endless; so as much as we love our families and friends it is all so temporary. We must remember God has a larger plan. Many times it is true that the good die young.

    Classy. Props to ‘The Voice’. As an educational assistant in an elementary school, this event has (secretly) traumatized me a bit. But it’s things like this, and Ann Curry’s motivational deal, that keep me from sinking into the ‘what’s the point of it all?’ frame of mind. It’s hard, but in working with kids- one more day of love is better than none at all.
